This will place all such names, in close touch with the organized movement now being carried forward, at a time when progressive methods of taxation are of the most urgent importance to our country.
Duplicate names are as valuable as the first ones, especially if they give particulars of interest shown, of occupation, leisure, means, influence, as they greatly help us in selecting correspondents and committees.

NO LIQUOR BY MAIL. Postmaster General Meyer has issued an order which has a direct bearing upon the prohibition movement. The order is as follows:
“It is hereby ordered that it shall be a condition of any contract hereafter entered into for carrying the mails upon star, screen wagon, mail messenger or special service route that the contractor or carrier shall not transport intoxicating liquor from one point to another upon such route while in the performance of mail service.”
The order becomes effective at once in many sections of the country where it is necessary to install new and supplementary service.
